DUBAI: Scores of fashion designers from India, Pakistan and many others based in the UAE are ready to compete for the Dubai Fashion Awards 2013 to be held in Dubai next month.

The jury consists of Aftab Shivdasani, Friha Altaf and the third one will be announced later, who will also be from Bollywood.
